Memcache-client - how to start server on development

I’ve been trying to start the memcache-client server on my development
box, but haven’t been able to figure out how to do this.

It defaults to using “localhost:11211,” but there is nothing running on
that port.

The rDoc for memcache-client just says to run:

CACHE = ‘localhost:11211’

but that doesnt actually start a memcache server on port 11211. How do I
get a memcache server running on port 11211 so that MemCache can connect
to it?

That is merely a memcache client for ruby. You have to run the actual
memcache server, memcached. See below for more information.

hi, thanks for the response, yeah I realized that after many hours…doh!

Anyways, I ended up having to get the memcache server for windows.
Thanks for the response, nonetheless.
